In this paper, we propose a multirate teletraffic loss model of a single link with certain bandwidth capacity that accommodates Poisson arriving calls, which can tolerate bandwidth compression (elastic traffic), under the threshold policy. When compression occurs, the service time of new and in-service calls increases. The threshold policy provides different QoS among service-classes by limiting the number of calls of a service-class up to a pre-defined threshold, which can be different for each service-class. Due to the bandwidth compression mechanism, the steady state probabilities in the proposed model do not have a product form solution. However, we approximate the model by a reversible Markov chain, and prove recursive formulas for the calculation of call blocking probabilities and link utilization. The accuracy of the proposed formulas is verified through simulation and found to be very satisfactory.
